I’m a professional wedding videographer, and I started out with this camera three years ago. I was forced to start my own business due to economic hd1000uu at my old job The Weather Channeland needed to purchase all of the necessary gear to film weddings and commercials with on my very strict read unemployed budget.

All money for my venture was coming completely out of pocket. I yd1000u a good week researching camera models that would work well within the outfit I was trying to create and finally decided on this one.

Sony HVR-HDU Overview – CNET

Having been to a number of shoots in the past with small yet capable cameras, I know how important the physical look of your camera can be to clients.

To a video person, the body of the camera isn’t the deciding factor, but to those in the know who are hiring a professional, a shoulder mount will always look more impressive than a hand-held. Under the right lighting conditions, you can get hf1000u truly amazing looking footage. I have filmed over weddings with 2 of these cameras, and had many of them delivered on Blu-Ray with some impressive results. The auto features are also very good, which is perfect for the run-and-gun nature of filming a reception.


Also, the ease of use makes it an extremely appealing camera for a beginner, and is also helpful when training new assistants to help you camera op.

I have also found the stereo mic that the camera comes with to be rather exceptional. Also, the touch screen menu system, although the bane of most reviews gvr here, isn’t that difficult to use at all.

In fact, after three years of use, I have grown extremely accustomed to it, and enjoy working with it. I ended up helping film hvt pilot for a Ghost Hunter’s type show, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without this function. So, you never know when you might need it.

The dual hot shoes are conveniently placed as well. Now for the cons. The menu system is a pain at first, but it did’t hvf long to get the hang of, just a few shoots with it.

One of the biggest drawbacks in my opinion, and I’m sure others will agree, is the fact that there is only a single mini-jack mic input.

This allows me to have two mic inputs simultaneously. Also, the mic input is right above the tape deck, so you have to hold the cable up every time you put in a new tape.

This, unfortunately, cannot really be fixed. All in all, the camera has some drawbacks, like pretty much any camera out there. However, if you are on a tight budget and still want to go with a tape system for the reliability of having physical back-ups to your shoots, this is a mighty fine camera.

If you are doing corporate videos and live events, this camera can work exceedingly well for you. It looks extremely professional, which is surprisingly important to clients, and it gets good results, especially when you use it the right way.

At the end of the day, my two models of this cam have earned me back their cost many, many times over in the last three years. I hope this review helps anyone who might be on the fence with what camera they’re looking to buy. Cheers, and happy shooting! Camera received was a returned product by previous customer over 80 pictures were still in memory card So far, so good Manual focus is something user has to learn to operate in order to be comfortable with.

Which I still have to do. So far, so good. You can’t argue with results, and I have gotten excellent results with this camera.
